Carbon Axle

Anyone built one before?

 

I’m looking to buy an off the shelf carbon tube. Looking for ways to attach either a threaded fitting to the end or a stud.

The grub screw goes into the s/s tube , carbon tube and s/s pipe, but not the nuts.

I get the cabon tube from C-Tech nz.

I use a thick wall carbon tube so it only flexs on a hard landing and will not break or bend like s/s.

I've made foil shape axles before and they work very well, just a shit load more work to make the end plugs and mount to side rails.

And before you ask 

NO

I'm way to busy, making a E-Foil at the mo :)

Sharp tool and a high speed to machine carbon fibre. I use standard tool steel and get a good finish without the furry bits.
